There are always a couple of films shown at Comic-Con that arenâ€™t advertised. Sometimes theyâ€™re absolute pieces of shit that arenâ€™t worth the wild goose chase to gain admittance, but most of the time, the studios will preview an absolute gem.
Collider has discovered that the Wachowski brotherâ€™s highly-anticipated chop-suey actioner â€œNinja Assassinâ€ will likely be screening â€“ albeit very quietly â€“ on Thursday evening. And like a few films Iâ€™ve secretly previewed at Comic-Con in the past, sounds like this could be a goodie. Why? Itâ€™s open to the public, that means the studio must be pretty confident in the flick.
Says Frosty, â€œWhat you need to do is go to the Warner Brothers booth on Thursday as theyâ€™re going to be giving away a limited amount of tickets. Then youâ€™ll need to get to the theater early as itâ€™s going to be first come first served. Meaning, even if you get tickets at the booth, youâ€™re going to want to be at the theater early as theyâ€™re giving away more tickets than seats. Itâ€™s how they make sure the theater is full.â€™â€™
Directed by James McTiegue, and produced by the Wachowski’s, “Ninja Assassin” tells of a young ninja who turns his back on orphanage that raised him, leading to a confrontation with a fellow ninja from the clan. Rain, Rick Yune and Naomie Harris star.
Warner Bros are also hosting a screening of â€œOrphanâ€ on the Wednesday night.
